Configuring a User Account

To access your FortiRecorder you will first need to create a user account. There are three user creation methods that fit a variety of different access situations. The following login instruction assumes you will use the same credentials (user name and password) to log in to Central and FortiRecorder NVR. For alternative logins, see Alternative login methods.

To create a user account

  1. Click the Settings button at the top right of the software.
  2. Select Settings > Users.
  3. Enter a username and password and select New. Your username should be the same username you use to access the FortiRecorder unit.
  4. Specify a user type. For a definition of each user type, see the FortiRecorder Administration Guide.
  5. Login type is Local Authentication. Select RADIUS or LDAP to avoid having to maintain a list of all users on FortiCentral and instead access a centralised directory. LDAP login type supports user properties. The user type, remote control attribute, and the startup view are retrieved from the LDAP directory individually for each user. For more information about RADIUS and LDAP user authentication and configuration, see the FortiRecorder Administration Guide.
  6. Select OK.
